The Seis Apartment Building assignment consisted in projecting six luxury apartments in a terrain with a steep slope on the southern face of Cerro San Luis, an urban hill located in Santiago de Chile.

We conceived this building not as a set of apartments, but as six houses piled one above the other, placing four duplex units with the same characteristics in the first levels, while the last two are located above the previous ones, deliberately settling their façade level of the lower units in order to reduce the presence of the building towards the public space and take advantage of the slope of the site.

These last apartments are located on a platform built over the lower units and connecting with the upper level of the property, so that, unlike the first four units, they have their four facades open to an inhabitable exterior.

A system of large terraces are proposed displaying Aluzinc brise-soleil that in some parts cover the entire height of the duplexes allowing corners of greater privacy among these terraces.

The interiors are structured as an open plan with few structural elements, so that it allows different configuration alternatives and evolutions over time. Only the bathrooms and kitchens have been considered as permanent enclosures, which were designed to adequately serve all the proposed program alternatives, given the future difficulty of intervening the facilities of said enclosures.
